Cameron Diaz is the latest actress to try her hand at writing a book.
She plans to write a book for young girls about the importance of staying healthy and eating right.
"She wants to stop their fixation on being thin, and for teenage girls to understand that being healthy is more important," a source said. "She wants to use her celebrity to make a difference. She knows she is a role model to girls and she really wants to use that position to do good.”
A deal has not been made as of yet. However, Diaz has signed with a literary agent.
The actress also plans to visit high schools to discuss food choices with teenagers.
"Through this project, she wants schools to offer better meal options for kids," the source said. "She wants to have an impact on a huge scale. In some way, she feels like this is her calling. This is her passion."
In her recent movie, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Diaz plays a fitness guru who is pregnant. The actress said that she hopes to have children of her own one day.
Unlike other actresses, Diaz is also looking forward to turning 40 later this year.
"To me getting older is such a blessing because if you're not getting older you're dead,” she said.
